FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – A tree trimmer in Fort Worth was killed Monday morning.
The man was apparently working at a home on Warren Lane when he was electrocuted.
Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Tim Hardeman said when rescuers arrived they, “Found a male who appears to be deceased, in a tree. Apparently he was trimming trees at a residence here and came in contact with some power lines.”
Though fire department personnel were on the scene in minutes they couldn’t immediately get up in the tree to the body of Jose Murcia of Arlington.
“Nothing we can do until they cut the power, at this time,” Hardeman said. “So, they are on scene and we should be able to get him down here shortly.”
The 31-year-old victim had a co-worker with him at the time of the accident. The co-worker was the individual who placed the 911 call.
